An exception is thrown when you run the SPDatabaseServerDiagnosticsPerformanceCounterProvider class after you set up an SQL aliasing

Consider the following scenario. You have a server farm on which the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Timer service is running. The server farm includes one front-end server and one back-end server. Then, you set up an SQL aliasing for an instance of Microsoft SQL Server.

In this scenario, when you enable the SPDatabaseServerDiagnosticsPerformanceCounterProvider class and then run the class, an exception may be thrown out.
To work around this issue, follow these steps:
  1. Change the host files on the front-end server to resolve the SQL aliasing to the corresponding IP address of the instance of SQL Server.
  2. Run the following command to clear the Domain Name System (DNS) cache:

    ipconfig /flushdns
  3. Restart the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Timer service.
